DIY lip balm: Flaxseed oil + Vaseline + honeyOne of the biggest beauty bummers I seem to constantly face is flaky lips. I have no fewer than seven different lip balms in my purse at all times, and I apply Vaseline before bed every night. I thought nothing was more hydrating than petroleum itself, until Henriksen suggests I try another honey-based blend. First, apply a teaspoon of flaxseed oil (loaded with nourishing omega-3 fatty acids), then layer on some Vaseline for extra hydration, and finally a teaspoon of honey to seal in all the moisture. I swipe on this mix before bed one night and eight hours later, I wake up with lips that are still moist. I have yet to try a lip balm that lasts this long or tastes this good.
